Gift Box Confections

I've been feeling notalgic for a time in which I never lived.  A time when the presentation of a thing was every bit as important as the thing itself.

If a 17th century nobleman was giving his mistress some bejeweled trinket, would he deliver it in this?
And can't you just imagine a royal dispatch from Louis arriving protected by this?

Now the only question is, "what will they deliver in this day and age"?  Hmm....
